Forum: feature_films Subject: Bob Hope in High Def

someone posted on the blu-ray forum that road to bali/ road to rio were issued on HD-DVD http://www.amazon.com/Road-Rio-Bali-Double-Feature/dp/B000YDBP5M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1200348898&sr=8-1
i poked around some more to find that another bob hope film was issued on high def http://www.amazon.com/Bob-Hope-Collection-Favorite-Brunette/dp/B0011YZVOE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1200348936&sr=8-1
my fav brunette is in public domain, not sure about the other flick its coupled with but it would be sweet to get some high-def rips up am i right?

well I would say right off the top of my head if it's in high def it's not in PD! someone paid to make the HD version recently! I am sure they expect to make some money off it?

right?

I think both of those movies are already posted in there PD versions here if you look!

just don't get that HD stuff, what? do we really need to see everything? pimples, blood shot eyes ect, ect.....

but I'm an old guy too so maybe that's the point, Maybe? but think it's just something that someone (sony maybe) came up with to get us out buying more stuff to play them on!

restoration doesnt suffice for a new copyright, unless completely new elements are added, only then is a copyright feasible, and only on the new elements http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Public_domain#Derived_works_and_restorations_of_works_in_the_public_domain

Forum: feature_films Subject: Re: Bob Hope in High Def is at least a 20% change?

think the standard is changes of 20% or more and you get a new copyright? I would say HD would be within that 20% range but hey even the laywer have trouble figuring out this stuff right?

thats the problem right there! we need to update those laws!

i don't think thats the case i was reading about the original wizard of oz (1925 i believe?) an artist went back and redrew and recolored a lot of frames but since they were not inherently different than the original then there would be no change. and if you consider that the quality of a film print is much higher resolution than 720/1080 then the argument is moot.

When someone makes "significant changes" to a pd film, they can claim a copyright on the altered version. Significant changes include colorization and digital remastering, as would be the case with the HD version.
